    What More Later Ok I guess I get to be the party pooper here but I have to honestly say that this book just didn t cut it in any way for me and I m having a hard time trying to understand all the high ratings while believing, at the same time, these people read the same book I did I read and thoroughly enjoyed Ms Sheluk s significant debut novel The Hanged Man s Noose which was every bit worthy of the Arthur Ellis award for Best First Novel that it won and I was really looking forward to reading of her work so I guess expectations may have been too high and that may be why I am so deeply disappointed in this book Now the editing, proofreading and formatting of my Kindle edition were all fine and the writing style is quite good and while the setting is adequately described it is not as much a character in this story as it was in The Hanged Man s Noose and the book is populated by a fairly large number of quirky characters but that introduces the first of my many problems with this book One almost needs a programme to keep track of the cast and all of these characters seem to be related either by blood or by marriage to each other and they all seem to have to have been sleeping with each other in some arrangement or another at some time Perhaps not the blood relatives but who knows Then t...

    I received a copy of Penz Sheluk s novel early because I am interviewing her for my blog That being said, I really enjoyed this book, the first in a series about Calamity Callie Barnstable Her father s recent death drives the initial chapter where Callie learns the terms of his will Believe me, this starts the action and mystery very quickly Abby Barnstable, Callie s mother, has been missing and presumed dead for many years, ever since Callie was a small child She can t remember very much about her mother, but as she hears bits of her mother s story from various friends, she begins to remember scenes from her own elementary school years when her mother was alive James Barnstable her father left a will with strings attached Callie must move into a house she didn t know her father owned, and find out who murdered her mother Lots of characters who did, or perhaps didn t, know her pa...

    This was really a captivating mystery that I just could not put down from the first paragraph on..a young lady looking for the reasons to the disappearance of her mother over thirty years ago It was a pleasure reading such a lovely fast moving story plot was put together well, writing was great and the main character was so true to life You felt like she was your best friend All along I kept changing my mind as to who was guilty of what and the ending came as a GREAT BIG SURPRISE Then I just had fun my mom was into tarot readings and we often had Yorkshire pudding.a lot of happy memories raced through my mind as I read I also liked how the autho...

    The Mystery of the Missing Mother As an ignorant American, I hadn t realized that Canada had tried the Prohibition experiment too, and earlier than the U.S Just a throwaway comment grousing about the government run liquor stores made me take a second to check Wikipedia That this well written tale of a missing mother made me think and learn beyond following the clues was my own first clue that this was going to be an extra enjoyable read or, listen, in this case, as I allowed narrator Cl...
